My therapeutic process aims to empower people to recover and maintain a state of psychological well-being that they desire and deserve. I have a shorter-term, goal-directed approach to psychotherapy. I respect the financial and time investment required to undergo psychotherapy. In this regard, I attempt to give my client clarity as soon as possible as to the envisaged scope and duration of the therapy process. Although I see some clients on a regular basis over a period of months or longer and others for no more than 3 or 4 consultations, I more typically see clients for between 6 to 8 one-hour consultations.

My intergrative approach to psychotherapy accounts for the multiple factors that contribute to a client’s psychological state:


  • Biochemistry: there are instances where ones psychological state is influenced by some form of bio-chemical imbalance and doing psychotherapy alone, would not result in significant improvement. In this regard, I work closely with a network of psychiatrists who would assess and administer appropriate medication in conjunction with the process of psychotherapy.


  • Personal background and underlying dynamics:  I appreciate the fact that the way we experience and therefore engage with our world is a complex interplay between our genetic disposition, our upbringing, and the conscious or sub-conscious influence of certain past or current circumstances. Although my approach is shorter-term and goal-directed, I am comfortable and well-equipped to identify and address these deeper underlying personal dynamics. I would however not hesitate if deemed necessary, to refer to someone who specialises in a more intensive process of psycho-analysis.


  • Thought patterns and belief systems: I try to ensure that my client is armed with a sound insight into the dynamics that contribute to their psychological state. However, although critical for lasting change, insight alone does not always entrench the required behavioural and emotional changes. My therapy process also focuses on empowering clients to do effective cognitive and behavioural management so that, armed with self-insight, they can go about actively influencing a more healthy emotional state.
